Brazilian Naval Aviation, during the roll-out of the Saab Gripen E in Sweden in May, visited Saab facilities for updates on the development of a Sea Gripen version that was proposed to the force, sources told IHS Jane’s

Saab has been working on a naval version of the Gripen NG for a sometime, and in 2013 a model of Brazilian aircraft carrier NAe São Paulo was pictured at the LAAD defence exhibition with Sea Gripens on its flight deck and with Brazilian colours.

Still, a Sea Gripen is currently only a project and is awaiting a political decision in Brazil or another country to buy it.
